Is the ice cream mo­tor around?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The ac­com­pa­ny­ing photo shows a car that my fa­ther owned in the 1950s, based on a 1936 Y-se­ries Ford. It had been used for track racing in North­ern Ire­land.

My fa­ther and his friend made doors and had a hood made that they fit­ted them­selves. It would get re­painted ev­ery two years. When the photo was taken it had ma­roon mud­guards and a cream body and my sis­ter and I called it his ‘ice cream mo­tor’!

Per­haps your read­ers might know more about this car and if it is tucked away in a cor­ner of a barn some­where? David Beat­tie, New­tow­nards, County Down
